not only won, she won by 16 points. republican senator scott brown of massachusetts, who was so stuffed with hedge fund misunderstood that he burped credit default swaps. scott brown lost by a lot to the nation's foremost authority on the economic rights of the middle class. after marriage rights for same-sex couples were voted down in state after state after state for years, more than 30 times in a row, this year, all change in maine, they voted on marriage equality and they voted for it. in maryland, they voted on marriage equality and they voted for it. in minnesota, they were asked to vote against marriage equality, and minnesota refused to ban it. in washington state, the vote is not called yet. they are still counting the vote and we will be watching it closely, but if you are on the pro-gay right side in washington state, it should be noted that it is looking pretty good. in iowa, anti-gay activists were sure that they were going to turf out a judge for ruling in favor of marriage equality. they had done it before, to a bunch of other judges. they had been successful every time t
be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into the senate. i don't think that would be the worst thing in the world for the president, especially since we picked up seats this time around. scott brown, as a republican who may actually across the aisle, could actually serve as a useful political tool for the president. that will be interesting to watch. the other one, of course, is treasury secretary time geithner leaving. one of the outside names that's been floated is cheryl sandberg, coo of facebook. she's the first one and she's had a terrific choice. another name i haven't heard but my virginia centrist byas leads me to bring up is mark warner, senator from virginia, great businessman, has bipartisan appeal. i think he could be strong as well. the last one that's opening up is chief of staff, jennifer g n granholm apparently she is -- >> yes. >> apparently they really want to get her in in some position. >> more jenny g. >> the energy, cheerleading. >> unrelenting positive vibe and energy. >> for jenny g. >> i'd like to get rahm back. not a possibility. >> kerry
on the vote tally in arizona and senator scott brown is hinting at his political future. first as new members make their way to capitol hill, allen west continues to fight for his seat. west has now filed a complained in st. lucie county yesterday calling for a recount of all the early ballots in the race. west trails patrick murphy by 0.58% and according to state law an automatic recount is needed only when a difference in votes is 0.5% or less so not at that threshold. west told nbc, quote, i think that we need to have the electoral process play out as it should, and then wherever the results lie, that's fine with me. but i want to make sure we have honor and integrity in that process. meanwhile, on the hill yesterday democrats held a press conference to introduce incoming members of congress and the house minority leader nancy pelosi addressed murphy as congressman elect. the only nonsitting member to speak. >>> meanwhile, out in arizona there are 340,000 ballots that have yet to be counted in the senate race between richard carmona and jeff flake. carmona did concede on election night whe
anybody who was brown or black. bemis practically anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. you had a case here where the republican party right now is stampeding toward irrelevance. if they do not catch up with everything in the national journal, there is changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama yesterday put together this new ascendant coalition, put it back together from 2008 and enough of the democratic coalition so you have this combination of hispanics, more than 70% of hispanics, young voters, people who both want to twice as a democrat. they're likely to remain a dealt crack -- democrat. republicans, what they're missing is the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. like it or not, this is becoming a majority minority nation and the republican party, this is the last time republicans will have a chance at winning the presidency with this kind of electoral strategy. >> let's talk about why this happened. some of it was issues, some of it was th
. [chanting "warren"] yeah, i love you, too. i don't have to tell you this was a tough campaign. senator brown and i had our differences, but he and i just spoke and he sent his congratulations. i hope you'll join me in thanking senator brown for his service to the commonwealth. [applause] we wish scott and gail and their daughters nothing but the best. nothing but the best. i also want to speak to senator brown's supporters. the message you sent was clear. we need leaders in washington who are willing to break the partisan gridlock and work regardless of party. i know i did not earn your vote, but i promise i will work to earn your support. [cheers and applause] there are many people to thank tonight. i am going to start with my husband bruce. i also want to thank my kids, my beautiful grandkids, my brothers, my in-laws, my cousins, my nieces and nephews here in massachusetts and all across the country. senator kerrey, governor patrick, mayor, thank you for your support, for your encouragement, and most of all for your leadership. you were real fighters in my corner and i appreciate that. but
kaine and sherrod brown would have to look for a new job. he got nothing right! >> you can be bad at calling stuff but to be that blind. >> bill: what's on twitter? >> we're tweeting at bp show. you talked about karl rove. you talked about all of the money, he's some explaining to do. blue rabbit said we should send shirts to the koch brothers saying i paid millions for an election and all i got was this lousy t-shirt. >> bill: i like that. >> we were just talking about the breakdown of -- >> bill: the "the obama hate machine" ran out of gas. >> send him a couple of copies of the book maybe. you were talking about how people voted for obama. chuck on twitter says latinos deported romney and women shut that whole thing down by voting for obama. >> bill: i like that. >> we're tweeting at bp show. find us there. >> bill: melissa is in pulaski, virginia. >> caller: hello, how are you? >> bill: i'm fine. what's your take on all of this? >> caller: it is ironic. i was looking at today, all of the different groups, th
, please. >> i am wondering what impact you think a link-up moderate senators, such as brown, lugar, college are going to have on the negotiation? >> we have been waiting for some time, including actor for example senators snowe and lugar announced they were retiring, for change, and has not been there. they continued along the path in following the leadership of senator mcconnell. whether it changes now is an open question. i suspect it will a little bit, and it may well for senator brown, depending on when we get an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he wil
was able to watch part of her debate with scott brown and she made a lot of sense talking about the economic challenges that face us. i hope that her voice is heard in washington during the lame duck session. her prescription for the economy is what the voters chose. and the lame duck -- our elected officials during the lame duck session, i think should pay attention to that. >> bill: right. you're darn right she did a good job in the debates. why do you think scott brown canceled the last debate? charles is calling from birmingham alabama. what do you say? >> buenos dias senor. >> bill: buenos dias. >> caller: bill, i have not heard a lot of discussion about how the withdrawal from afghanistan might affect the budget negotiations. >> bill: yeah, that raises a very good question, charles. inappreciate hearing from you on this veterans day. the president has talked about that terry. he's said, without maybe -- i haven't heard a specific number but one of the advantages of ending the war in iraq and drawing down
brown went to college campus to get support for this. he got it. >> california is in a financial mess and they raised taxes and passed proposition 30 that reallies taxes again. >>rian: now you will not do business there. >> california reelected president obama by a 20 point margin because they want a bailout. they think the second obama term will bail them out of their financial problemms. they are raising taxes leftt, right and and pushing businesses out of the state and they want a bailout and i think at point they will probably get >> brian: in terms of me doing the action thriller in california. i will turn it down. >> would you do life of brian two? >> brian: i am thinking about it >> we worship you oh, brian. >> brian: we'll have to see. see you stewart varney. >> my pleasure. >> brian: day one of the next four yearings. he died and went to heaven and now the neurosurgeon has the number one book in the country and answering your questions for crossing over for one full week. we'll have the answer. "fox and friends" right now x. 49 percent of the americans on government assistanc
brown. i mean, as moderate a guide and for the previous panel, they were talking about what congress needs to do to work together and where you need moderate republicans. you need moderate democrats but on the republican side, scott brown, probably would have been one of these people who could work across party lines, scott brown loses. linda -- in hawaii and moderate republican. she would have been a strong asset i think for that kind of congress that pulls things together. she was a terrific candidate and ran a great campaign but you know running in a republican in a very democratic state in the precedence home state is particularly her, it just rang up no sale. i would add heather wilson in new mexico was another one like that in so to sort of moderate republicans running in very blue states basically all lost and then look at their counterparts. look at the democratic moderates running in the red states. joe donnelly in indiana. now, sure maybe you want to get some credit to his opponent but you know, but he did manage to when and a blue jersey winning in indiana in a nondemocr
environment makes it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and heather wilson. the problems -- the problem with the republicans -- they have some very ideologically driven voters, but part of the republican base is more open to voting for democrats than the democratic base is to vote for republicans, i believe. that even example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney one north dakota by 21. and i was able to overcome that. it is true that she -- that the president one north dakota slightly less than -- at mitt romney 1 north dakota at slightly less than the president's won massachusetts. but the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but as more willing to vote for democrats. john barrow in georgia, the republican candidate was horrendous. a challenger refused to debate the incumbent. [laughter] i didn't say it was a bad decision, i just said it says something about the challenger. i think this is an additional problem. it is easier for moderate, centrist democrats to feel the republican voters than
of scott brown, the former governor in hawaii, heather wilson in new mexico. they could not win because of their party's brand. heidi won. joe donnelly won. this is a one size brand contaminates all other candidates, even the ones that have no ability whatsoever in some of the exotic party. yeah, we are going to hear a bunch of people with iq's lower than room temperature say that mitt romney lost because he was not conservative enough. but i think after republicans go through their seven stages of grief, they can get to a point where they can make some changes if they will be a party for the future. >> thank you, charlie. we enjoy being here. we're trying to say something that is interesting and thoughtful and novel hours after the polls close. i hope i come close to what he said. i really wanted to come out here. i really wanted to come out here and say -- i just heard what charlie said. there is not one thing i agree with. he is absolutely wrong about everything. i never say that. we always agree. [laughter] we are in general agreement on what happened. politics is so much about expe
elizabeth warren to replace incumbent scott brown for the seat formerly held by the late ted kennedy. in north dakota, heidi heitkamp beat rick berg. in held off a tough challenger from congressman denny rehberg. and claire mccaskill beat todd akin. >> let's let that one breathe for a second. >> why don't we. >> let me just say as probably the lone registered republican sitting not only at this table but in this zip code, thank you, todd akin. thank you for selfishly putting yourself above your party and the values that you claim to hold dear. you just gave up yet another senate seat for the republican party to harry reid. todd, thanks a lot, pal. the rest of the world knew you were going to lose, and you decided to do it anyway. >> right. and i'll add to that, if i could, to be completely annoying, i'm sure, but thank you, todd akin and richard mourdock and thank you republican party for not breaking their arms and getting rid of them and instead focusing on people like chris christie who were just doing his job. >> again, this is a problem. it's a branding problem. and john, you kn
it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and linda lingle and heather wilson. the problems with republicans is that they're based -- that's a very ideologically driven voters, tea party folks, but part of the republican base is more open, friendly, to voting for democrats than the democratic base is for voting for republicans, i believe. i'm sure we could chew this over. let me give you an example. but me give you an example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north olympic terrific candidate and north dakota. mitt romney won north dakota by 20, 21 points. and heidi was able to overcome that. it's true that she won them as the president one north dakota, slightly less than president, that mr. romney one north dakota slightly less than the president one massachusetts. but i think the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but is more willing to vote for democrats. and, jim matheson surviving utah is amazing. amazing. john barrow in georgia, yes, a republican candidate against john darrell was horrendous. when was the last
